Pork Medallions with White Wine Sauce

I love to cook pork tenderloin, and one of my goto options is to cut pork medallions from a whole loin.  In this recipe video, I show you how to portion out medallions, sauté them, and serve with white wine sauce.  The dish reminds me a bit of filet mignon, but of course is a bit lighter and healthier.  Another great thing about pork, is the options are nearly endless.  It’s easy to add differe

Mushroom Sauce with Brandy

A great sauce can really make a dish special, and I’m always looking to find great combinations between meat and sauce.  In this recipe video, I make a mushroom sauce with brandy for a filet mignon I just cooked.  The technique is called a pan sauce, which can consist of just about anything, but almost always involves deglazing

How to Slice an Onion

Here is a short cooking video where I show you how to slice an onion.  One of people’s chief complaints about slicing onions, is doing so makes them cry.  Well, the best way to reduce the tears is to move quickly.  And to move quickly, you need to have solid knife skills.  Unlike julienne onions, when I refer to slicing,

How to Clean Kale

Here is a short cooking video where I show you how to clean kale.  Kale, much like chard and collard greens, are large leafy vegetables, which are more hearty, and much bigger than spinach leaves.  I think they have a great texture and flavor, and make a great side or vegetable for pork and chicken dishes.  Typically, you don't want to serve kale raw, as it's quite a hearty green, a

Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken

As a kid, fettucini alfredo was maybe my absolute favorite…it was like mac n’ cheese but…sophisticated.  And as you’ll see in this recipe video, my enthusiasm hasn’t diminished over the years.  Fettucini alfredo is one of my go-to dishes when I’m at an Italian restaurant, and I think my version as just as good.  Many people think

How to Chop Apples

Fruit is probably under-used in savory recipes and apples are one fruit that shouldn’t be. In this cooking technique video, I show you how to chop up an apple, which, in this particular case, I used an apple and black bean salsa. But no matter what recipe you’re making, savory or sweet, knowing the right knife techniques will help you in a number of ways.

How to Pound out a Chicken Breast

In this cooking technique video, I show you how to pound out a chicken breast.  Now you may ask yourself (quite legitimately), why should I pound out a chicken breast?  Well, in addition to the therapeutic benefits of taking out your frustration, several chicken dishes are actually improved by having a uniformly thick (or thin), flat piece of breast meat…which is not the natural shape of a chic

Spaghetti Pesto with Chicken

I discovered pesto fairly late in life, and it’s a shame I missed out on years of deliciousness.  In this recipe video, I make a spaghetti pesto with chicken that is both tasty and pretty easy to make.  Pestos are traditionally made with basil, garlic, pine nuts, and parmesan cheese.  In this version, I change it up a bit because I didn’t have pine nuts; I had almonds.  But in the spirit of No

How to Dice an Onion

I would guess more than 50% of the dishes I cook call for onions, and many of those for diced onions.  Getting proficient at cutting an onion (along with other knife skills) is absolutely essentially, if you want to cut down (pun intended) on your prep work, and spend more time eating.  In this cooking video I show you a technique for dicing an onion that is far quicker than what yo

Polenta

Polenta is one of my favorite side dishes, and far more simple than a lot of people think.  In this recipe video, I make a simple and tasty polenta that would go great as a side dish for roast chicken, braised dishes like oso bucco, or simple classic dishes like chicken piccata.
